Mental Health and Well-being
At the Alverstoke CofE Junior School we think it is important that children, staff and families are supported with their mental and physical health and overall wellbeing.
We have a full time Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA), Mr Steve Barnes.
He offers targeted support whether one to one or in a small group.
Mrs Harrowsmith is our Designated Mental Health lead.
At our school we want all children to:
- Feel confident in themselves
- Be able to express a range of emotions appropriately
- Be able to make and maintain positive relationships with others
- Cope with the stresses of everyday life
- Manage times of stress and be able to deal with change
- Learn and achieve.
We are not mental health professionals but we can support your child in school and signpost to additional agencies that may be appropriate.
Our Mental Health and Wellbeing Policy can be found here.
Family Support Hub:
There is a wealth of advice and support available online. Access to our family support hub can be found here.
APPS TO SUPPORT MENTAL HEALTH & WELLBEING
Some Apps are young child appropriate, some older child/teen, others more adult.
Please look at an app and its content before sharing with your child.
We do not recommend any specific apps and cannot take responsibility for any app you may share with your child.
